CHINA, JAPAN RE­SUME ECO­NOMIC TALKS AF­TER YEARS

Sun.Star Cebu - - WORLD -

China and Japan re­sumed high-level eco­nomic talks Mon­day af­ter a hia­tus of nearly eight years in a sign of im­prov­ing ties in their of­ten-frosty re­la­tion­ship. Led by their for­eign min­is­ters, the two sides met in Tokyo for what was billed as the fourth Japan-China High-Level Eco­nomic Di­a­logue, and the first one since Au­gust 2010. Asia’s two largest economies have rea­son to co­op­er­ate in the face of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s moves to im­pose tar­iffs on im­ports from their coun­tries and his de­mands that they open their mar­kets more to Amer­i­can ex­ports. Ja­panese Prime Min­is­ter Shinzo Abe is head­ing to the United States this week to meet Trump to dis­cuss both trade and Trump’s plans for a sum­mit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. /
